there are only 50,000 sheep in British Columbia on the 16,000 farms

Granby Plans to Have Its
Plant in Shape to Start
Mining and Milling in
a Couple of Months
Hon. J. D. MacLean, minister of
railways, haB returned from a thor
ough inspection of the Pacific Great
Eastern railway and reports tbe
Hoe in splendid condition, despite
the handicaps naturally encounter
ed. The new schedule of operation
provides for a bi-weekly passenger
and freight service to Quesnel and a
tri weekly service to Lillooet from
Squamish, The new sleeping-car
accommodation is meeting approval
all aling the line.
Hon. Dr. MacLean predicts that
the operating deficit this year will
be considerably less than in former
years, and while it]would be a large
order at present to bave the railway
break eveo, tbat is tbe objective of
tbe department.
Definite instructions re
spectingthe resumption of activity at Copper monntain
were received yesterday by
R. L. Clapp,assistant general
manager of the Granby company, says the Princeton Star
Mr. Clapp will have full
charge of the operations of
the newly organized Allenby
Copper company, and will occupy the bungalow at Copper
mountain formerly used by
Mr. Van Wagenen, general
manager of the Canada Copper corporation.
So far as the Granby is
concerned, the work at pres
eut will consist in putting the
plantbothatthe mine and the
mill, ih shape for operating.
This will give employment to
100 men. The work of repairing the railway track between
Princeton ahd the mountain
is exdected to commence at
once and will employ a con--
siderable force of men for
abont two months. The
GrBnby company is planning
to have its plant in shape to
begin miniug and milling by
the time the railway spur is
repaired.

pect to be able to turn tbe water on
the land by tbe 15th of the present
month.
The manufastuie of tbe concrete
pipe for the unit was finished on
Wednesday, and the machine has
been moved to Oliver, where it will
be used for pipe-making for the
government irrigation system at
tbat place. It will be brought back
to tbis city later in the summer ii
tbe Crscade irrigation scheme man

Tne laying of the pipe for the No.

aod by tbe end of that time the
pumps should be here and installed
ready for action. The trustees may
not be far out in their calcutioos.
As an auxiliary to tbe pumping
plants, tbe water of Morrissey creek
will be piped and used for irrigating
this unit by gravitation. This
should materially reduce the power
bill for pumping.
Vancouver, May 30 —The West
Kootenay Power bonds that were
authorized recently by the company, and which bear the guarantee
of tbe Consolidated Smelting company, will be offered in a few days
by tbe National City company and
Hanson Brothers. Tbe issue consists
of $1,750,000 of 6 per cent 20-year
bonds.
Consolidated Smeltiug is virtually
a C.P.R. proposition, and this gives
the new bond issue a good ranking
from the start. The company serves
a numbei of towns and industries
in the British Columbia mining and
fruit districts, and is considered to
have very excellent prospects.
Tbe issue will likely be offered at
par to yield 6 per cent to tbe investor.
. An interesting feature concerning
this company is that its bonded in
debtedness is the lowest per develn
oped horsepower—less tban $52—of
any power company in Canada.

Notes, Notions and Notables
Under the new income tax law just proclaimed in Russia monthly incomes below
1,350,000,000 rubles—which amounts to about
twenty seven dollars—are not taxed. Above
that, the tax begins at 6 per cent and rises
rapidly. Anyone who has an income that
amounts to more than $100 a month in American money must pay the government 80 per
cent of the excess. Thejjtax is aimed at the
merchants and speculators who are taking advantage of the scarcity of every kind of article
in Russia to make qnick fortunes. It is said
that there are a great many of such men whose
income is now expressed in trillion of rubles
a month.
Typhoid fever os a cause of death has al
most disappeared in the cities where the

death from typhoid fell to 3.15 to the 100.000,
less than a sixth of what it was twelve years
ago. Back in 1882 it was about 60 to the
100,000. The improvement has not been so
rapid in rural districts, but the situation was
never so bad there as it used to be ln the'cities

From time to time various magazines have
urged trout fishermen to use a barbless hook.
A skillful fisherman would lose few fish

covering of slime. Those who have tried fish -

from the place of iheir origin.

Some day the cactus may prove to be one
of the most useful plants. Its value as a water
reservoir has long been appreciated; lately 't,

Years ago an Illinois barber traded his razor

started a barber shop the equipment of which
included a cyanide tank. Clippings from the
hair and beards nf the miners were thrown into
the tank for what they were worth. The barber asserts that he brought back half a million
dollars' worth of gold with him.
A twelve-pound nugget of pure gold has
been discovered in the Kilo state mines, in
northeastern Congo. The nugget, which is
worth a small fortune, measures four inches

that now includes thc Kilo mines reported
that there was no gold in his aera, and asked
for new territory. He was told to stick to

of the same line was the first vessel
to carry trans-Atlantic passengers
into the port in 1928.
The number ef strikes and lockouts in Canada during 1922 was 85.
The number of working men involved in the strikes was 41,060 and
the number of working days lost

Topping the grain shipments frem
St. John of the 1921-22 winter season by almost four million bushels
and establishing a record for ths
port for volume in a single shipment
for one vessel, tbe 1922-23 grain
business through the Canadian Pacific elevators up to May 1st totalled
15,249,361 bushels The single shipments' record was made on an all-
wheat cargo at S59,7M kuakai*.
■TWENTY years ago Montreal was bnt a "mere calling
*> place for ships." It had practically no modern cargo-
handling devices or equipment, its wharf sheds were Just
wooden shacks which were actually taken down in
winter to prevent them being blown away, and much of
the merchandise was stored in the open air at the mercy
of the wind and weather. Now Montreal Is the greatest
port of Canada and it is the best located. From a mere
riverside stopping place for shins, It has stepped into the
front rank of ocean ports, and has become equipped with
facilities for the accommodation of ships and for the
handling and storing of freight that are unrivalled on tbe
continent. Despite the fact that Canada has lass than
10,000,000 population and that tha United States hu
more than 110,000,000, Montreal now handles a greater
volume of business than any port on the American
continent with the solitary exception of New York.
The principal reasons for Montreal's supremacy are
the facts that it Is nearly one thousand miles Inland
from the ocean, at the head of deep water navigation
with direct access to tha Atlantis, aud ihat behind it to
a through route right up to the head of ths Lakes at th*
Twin Cities, a thousand miles further inland. Were It an
all year port, Montreal would be the chief one of the
continent, but for some months winter closes the beautiful St. Lawrence route, and the vessels fretting at the
mouth of the great river must wait until the Ice goes out
ln the spring before they can make their way westward.
About fifty years ago, the Harbor Master originated
the idea of presenting a tall silk hat to the captain of ths
flrst vessel to arrive ln the spring with a transatlantic
ship. This custom was observed for about thirty-flv*
years, then, as the top hats lost thslr popularity, a gold
hsadsd cans was presented Instead by th* Harbor
Commission,
This ysar the cane was presented to Captain Edmund
Aikman, of the Canadian Pacific S.S. Bollngbroke who
had just completed his first voyage In command. The

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently obtained, are: "To provide a Home ami Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to'
provide free ScientiBc Care, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the many of such unfortunates, who, for the lack of such service, perish every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in tbe verious provinces reveals the fact that there
are at the presant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
has yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the flrst home was opened in New York City; they have now homes
in 13 States, all doing excellent work. In England, some time ago, Sir Arthur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Chorley Wood, for .Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is the only one ia the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Boa-id. While the
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early and generous response is confidently expected. Cheques should' be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged.
